Underage DUI

The Rules are Not the Same for Minors

Many people are familiar with the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) legal limits in Florida, which is .08 percent. Many do not realize that there are different requirements for anyone under the age of 21. This "zero tolerance" policy enforces a legal limit of only .02 percent. If any young driver is suspected of driving under the influence, an officer may request the suspect to submit to a field sobriety test. If the results are over the limit, the officer may then request a breath, blood or urine test. If the BAC is .02 percent or higher, then an arrest is made.

This is the phone call no child wants to make and no parent hopes to receive. If your child has been arrested or charged with a DUI offense, seek immediate legal counsel with an Ocala DUI attorney.
